I've noticed some interesting results if you vanish or sap a minion while your opponents hand is full the card is killed. Sap and vanish change the board state of the card to off-board, then its put back in hand. IMO if the hand is full then it should be milled/discarded. But since that's not how it works, with cheat death active, if your hand is full and say a Shallow Gravedigger is killed, the deathrattle does nothing and cheat death does not trigger. Now in theory, considering the way vanish or sap works cheat death should trigger a deathrattle effect twice if a hand is full right? Once for when its killed, then again when cheat death attempts to put the card back in your full hand (which kills minions in the sap or vanish mechanic), but that's not what happens. Nothing happens. Cheat death only triggers if your hand has room for the card. Bug?
No, secrets are coded not to activate under certain circumstances, just like Spellbender won't activate if the board is full. Depends on what the secret does and if there's room for it to do it.
Read the tool tip for Secrets again, then come back.
I had the same problem. How bout you just give the information instead of being a jerk?
your secrets don't trigger during your turn.
This is a great card!
Likely to be Cheat Death targets:
Sonya Shadowdancer - Kill her and trigger the secret, or kill something else and trigger her ability?
A large number of powerful Deathrattle and Battlecry guys...
Rogue tier 1
It works like Anub'arak
This is a good secret to have beside Sudden Betrayal because now it's a real toss up: send in your weak minions to kill them and the card activates, giving you a minion back for less, but if you send in the strong one it might kill one of your other minions. I like the guessing games and really dig this card.
What toss up? Betrayal triggers only by face attack.
Cheat Death and Zola the Gorgon seem like they make Quest Rogue better...
I think they printed this to make wild even more annoying.
For standard it's fairly strong too.
Good card , amazing in Wild
Yep, that's one easiest/cheap combo, but there's still a lot more to explore.
Preparation - Cheat Death - Edwin VanCleef is also really powerful.
More ways for rogue to discount/combo cards. they needed that.
I think that people are under-valuing this somewhat. If you can get a strong value card like an auctioneer or malygos off, it is great and could allow you to set up some combos that otherwise are impossible with leeroy.
Jade Rogue gets another tool.
